Reading Books

If you have come across any school reading books over the weekend please return them to school this week so we can inventory our class readers.  Thank you.


Partnership in Learning Afternoon

A big thank you to all the parents and carers who attended the Partnership in Learning day last Thursday.  It was a fun afternoon and the children thoroughly enjoyed the project.  The story setting boxes looked fantastic!  Thank you for your donations of boxes and materials.  Everything was used and very much appreciated.



If your child in in Reception class, your Tapestry account will end on 26th July.  Please download any of the observations you may want to keep before this date.  Thank you. 


Water and sun cream

Please ensure your child has a water bottle and sun cream is applied in the morning before school.  This half term can be very hot and sunny.


P.E. Kits

Please ensure your child's P.E. kit is labelled and check that you do not have any other kit in your child's bag.  If you find any items that don't belong to your child in their bag please return them to the class teacher.  Thank you for your support.
